Former Vice President Joe Biden went on a strange rant this weekend about hairy legs, roaches, and his love of kids sitting on his lap.
President Barack Obama’s former-VP, who has been plagued by “gaffe” scandals throughout his campaign, was in the middle of his 8 days “No Malarky” tour in Iowa.
Biden told a campaign crowd in Iowa,
“And by the way I sit on a stand, I got hot, I got hairy legs that turn, that, that, that, turn blond in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach in and pull and rub my legs, and watch the hairs rise up again. So I learned about roaches. I learned about kids jumping up on my lap. And I love kids jumping on my lap.”
However, even Joe Biden’s hairy legs quote doesn’t capture the strangeness of this video…
It’s hard to tell exactly WHAT Biden meant in his rambling story but, unfortunately for his campaign, this is a common occurrence. Just days earlier, for instance, Joe Biden BIT his wife Jill Biden during a campaign speech while she was introducing him.
Jill said, “And when they cut to the President of the United States…” Joe Biden then bit Jill before she continued “…You’ll call your kids in from the other room because you want them to hear what the President of the United States has to say!”
Joe Biden’s “No Malarkey Tour” (yes, that is the actual name they gave it) is a last-minute fight to recapture votes in Iowa after he fell into second place in polls behind first Senator Elizabeth Warren and most recently Southbend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Despite the trailing in the early-voting state, Joe Biden still leads Democrats nationwide, especially with the key black voter demographic.
